Read for: Children's Books & Borrowed Book
Synopsis: "When a friendly tortoise decides to set off on an adventure, he must first say goodbye to all of his friends. Affectionate farewells, of the sort that parents and their children share, are uttered to each animal as he slowly progresses through the zoo. Unfortunately, Tortoise spends so long with his heart-warming goodbyes that it is too dark for an adventure by the time he reaches the exit to the zoo."
My Review: This was a very cute story, little ones will get such a kick out of all the saying Tortoise comes up with to say goodbye to all of his animal friends. It would be a fun book to read before or shortly after going to the zoo to spark conversations about the various animals there. It is a short story and is great for a quick bedtime read and would be a good reminder for those reluctant sleepers that goodbye and goodnight are only for a short time and it will all begin again in the morning.
My Rating: This was such a cute book and young kids will get a kick out of all the phrases Tortoise comes up with to say goodbye. I give this one a rating of Four Paws!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
